Beaumaris RNLI has a new recruit ready to commence training at nine weeks of age
With a lifeboat tradition in his blood nine week old Harrison has already joined his Mam, Dad and Grandfather on a visit to the Beaumaris Lifeboat station.
His parents Mark and Leanne are both volunteer crew members of the Beaumaris lifeboat Mark has followed his father Mike as a helmsman on the boat. Mike is now a Deputy Launching Authority for the lifeboat.
With such a background it is hoped that Harrison will also follow and become a trainee crew member after his 17th birthday.
All of the volunteers at Beaumaris Lifeboat have been enchanted by young Harrison and welcome Leanne back as a crew member following her maternity leave.
